Hey good to hear that you're finally getting a replacement for the beast, I take it that you are all patched up and ready to roll. Although its still cold out there luckily here in the deep south we don't get much snow and most weeks have had some sunny days that have been perfect for a winter's day ride.

Update: Seller wants the bike gone sooner than next weekend so picking it up as soon as I can get the tax and insurance sorted.

Meatloaf: I was given the OK by the Doc and signed off by the Physical Terrorist three weeks ago so yes, all ready to ride and itching to get back on.

That is a lovely example of a divvy mate, well done.

That exhaust is brilliant, i fitted one to my mates 1984 900 and sounds really nice, not loud but it gives you a sound that feels like you can be heard.

Hi

I wished I still had my old Divi, same colour as yours but one year or so older, have noticed that mine had some plastic swing arm covers covering the swing arm pivot bolt, I fitted braided brake hoses on mine made the brakes feel more solid.

So, I've had the bike for two days. Still getting used to it (as Tommy says she's very different to the TR1). And I haven't been on a bike since October.

And I thought it would be jolly fun to go to Loomies Cafe down the A339 in the dark.

For those who don't know it, the 339 is pretty much all corners.

I must be mad. My arse was twitching like a rabbit's nose all the way there.
